Thousands of poor Chinese workers wait years to petition against injustices suffered in their home districts with the court of the plaintiffs in Beijing – often the last resort for those seeking redress for dismissals, land confiscations, beatings and arrests.

Filmed over a decade, director Zhao Liang gives an insight into the shared disenchantment of those who search for justice from a system that pays little to no significance to their individual suffering.

Released 5 Apr 2011. 85 min. Director: Zhao Liang. Documentary film.
